My little girl had surgery

A couple years ago, Bea’s vet pointed out a large almond shape growth in her mouth hanging from her upper jaw. At the time, the vet recommended monitoring the growth and if it ever changed, grew, or bothered her removal may be needed. A few weeks ago, when we were playing frisbee I noticed she … [Read more…]

Kauai 2019 – Day Four

This was boat trip day. Which was something not planned before I came to the island.

The first attachment I obtained was the pasta attachment; a roller and two cutters – which I have used many times. Fresh pasta cooks so much faster. I had mixed feelings about the grinder attachment. I didn’t really think I … [Read more…]
